About six months ago, my-friend-the-lawyer, who also used to DJ, commented that he still had the majority of his records and that he'd like to get them transferred to CD/MP3 at some point--in case something ever happened to them. (Or so he can indulge in a little house music on his Ipod on his way to work.)
So when I came across the Ion iTTUSB Turntable with USB Record this morning--my first thought was of him. I imagine he'll have one overnighted as soon as he gets back from his current vacation abroad.
Now I just have to figure out who else on my Christmas list might like one. There are several candidates, and at $122--it's not that unreasonable.
Thanks to PopGadget for the link!!!
